UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfil their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, Results
As Tanzania achieves the lower-middle-income status, rapid population growth, growing urbanisation and the increase in the absolute number of poor people in the country are causes for concern. More than a quarter of Tanzanians still live in poverty, unable to put food on the table, access healthcare or keep a roof over their heads. Poverty has devastating effects on children. Nearly one third of Tanzanian children live in income poverty while as many as 74 per cent experience multidimensional poverty, suffering deprivation in three or more areas such as health, nutrition, water, sanitation, housing, education, child protection and access to information.
UNICEF in Tanzania is responding to this challenge by focusing on: (i) generating knowledge on the situation of women and children in Tanzania for evidence-based advocacy and planning, including strengthening the national statistical system; (ii) ensuring adequate, efficient, effective and equitable public spending for the benefit of children and their families; and (iii) promoting the development of a comprehensive and integrated social protection system to reduce poverty and vulnerability
